January Trip : Paris, Cologne and Las Vegas

January was an exciting time full of fun projects and inspirational travels. Here’s a quick recap….

The Paris flea markets proved to be full of goodies. Many designers today find ideas here and reinterpret them for today’s market. One such item was this sofa/chaise. I saw this silhouette in many showrooms once we reached the Maison & Objet show in Paris.cologne color 2016The European markets were all about color. With a sea of taupes and greys happening in North America it was really refreshing to see so much color on everything. Mustard was hot(and I just don’t mean on the sausages in Germany).james in koln

Imm, Germany’s premier furniture exhibit is always fantastic. I think was my 5th time to this show and every time proves to be an amazing experience. And this time I brought along my good friend and design buddy Jonathan Sebastian.
